Alberta Sikh Heritage Month
It was an honour to celebrate the recognition of Sikh Heritage in the Province of Alberta with the Sikh Community, my colleagues and Premier Notley.
I had the opportunity to meet a diverse range of Sikhs including business and faith leaders, student organizers and advocates- working to make Alberta better for all within and between the our Alberta Sikh community. The event featured Gatka, a traditional style of martial arts of the Sikh faith and is symbolic of the Vaisakhi, known as the Sikh new year.
Sikhs have a long and rich history in Canada and it was with great joy that I was able to celebrate this milestone with them.
